This is a typical IBIS, with very clean but small room, but that’s what IBIS is for. The hotel room has a LCD, desk with chair and a very comfortable bed. No locker and mini bar. The washroom was clean with hair dryer and clean towels. The sleep quality was good and it was quite apart from sometime you might hear doors banging from other rooms otherwise rooms were quite.

The TV has only one English channel (CNN) its true who watches TV on a vacation but it is there for some reason right? So I felt there should be some English channels as well. I don’t know about the breakfast as my room was without it, however the WIFI was very good.

Airport – hotel – airport shuttle is good.

The staff is nice especially an Asian guy at night (I didn’t get the name) was very nice and he provided us with all the info we wanted.

The hotel is in a very quiet place far from city near the airport with mostly offices around, there is a good vending machine outside lobby which has all the snacks and there is a shop little far in the petrol station but you have to walk.

How to get to city easily? You can buy a tram ticket from reception for 6.5 CHF valid for 24 hrs, get a map from reception and once you come out of hotel on main street take right and walk for about 7 minutes and the tram station will be in front of you and once it’s in front of you take the tram which goes to left side, tram – 11 which goes to station called (HB) which will take you to middle of city at sihlquai train and tram station from where all the tour companies pick up for tours.

Overall this hotel is recommended as it cost less and has good quality and has easy access to city.

An excellent location if you need an overnight stay near Zurich airport. Free shuttle service (up until 23:10) with a 10 min ride to the hotel. Clean, quiet, comfortable (albeit functional) and very friendly service. Could be used as a base for exploring the city with excellent public transport nearby, but really more of a short stay place for travellers and those visiting the nearby trade fair/exhibition halls. I can thoroughly recommend this IBIS despite the fact that the surroundings are a little industrial. Very good breakfast. Excellent value for money!

Room Tip: There are no great views from any rooms - this is almost an industrial area but with plenty of green...

I stayed 1 night on business and the hotel was a good example of an Ibis hotel. Clean and up to date rooms. I had a bit of a wait (25 mins) for the free shuttle bus at the airport but other than that no problems reaching the hotel. Check in was quick and easy with free wifi for multiple devices. I had a good nights sleep. I did not use the restaurant or breakfast but would be happy to stay here again.
I do wish hotels would put an iron in the rooms though

ok, ONE STAR for being close to the airport with shuttle service every half hour.

But be very careful before you decide on this hotel.

1. The rooms are the size of a prison cell (the ones you see on TV, that is .... and I am measuring as we speak, the distance between edge of bed and Flat Panel TV across from it on the wall is a mere 19 inches ... wide suit cases will need to be left by the entrance, but then you won't be able to open the bathroom door so easily .. !) ...... the bathroom is barely wide enough to raise your arm without your elbow banging into the shower door. If you're used to a BAR of soap, bring your own.

2. There were NO hangers on the rack that's wedged between the corner and the window. I called the front desk, but had to go down 15 minutes later, still no sign of anyone bringing hangers up.

3. Suddenly, the door opened and a gentleman was standing in the doorway, having been given the same card key at check in ..... now here's a real deal breaker for women who expect security to be a top priority.

But it gets worse !

4. The originally quoted CF 99 rate by Bookings.com, was not honored. The rate became CF125 ... WHY, I asked the front desk gal .... Answer: There's a concert at the arena tonight. Gimme a break ! Who's gonna walk 7 blocks either way to the arena for IBIS

5. Met a lovely young lady in the elevator .... neither of our card keys worked for anything other than down to the garage level and back to the reception (lucky break) .... new keys were made .... good job ! ?.

6, This hotel in literally in "Nowhere Land" ... it will take you 15 minutes to walk 6 or 7 blocks to a light rail station, but then you need to go several stops until you find something that could be considered a "good" restaurant. Ibis restaurants cooks were not Culinary Institute graduates. No need to go into more detail.

Please note that this is the very first time I have ever rated a hotel ONE STAR. At 125CF, I would expect a bottle of water and one or two paintings on the wall. Ladies will not be particularly fond of the "elephant trunk" type hair dryer mounted into the wall. I thought those went out when HOJO's remodeled back in the 70's. Wish there was a Piggly-Wiggly or Wa-Wa store nearby.

Where is Howard Johnson's when you really need them..

We arrived at Zurich Airport very late in the afternoon and went straight to the Ibis. Easy check in ater we had booked from Australia. Rooms were comfy and had queen beds...had great sleep (needed it!) Restaurant was nice with tasty food and nice cold German Beer.

Only issue was they have their own unique power points and charge guests extra for their adaptors . Had issues with WiFi in our room,

Room Tip: Weekend rates are considerably cheaper than mid week. Also they charge for car parking
